Full view please, the thumbnail looks like ass. XD
I'm actually kinda pleased with how this wallpaper turned out, but it took way too much time to complete. ^_^'
I found the original scan on APA. [LINK][LINK] I believe it was originally a promotional ad for the second Girlfriend Of Steel game.
Thanks to Nuriko for all her hard work in keeping up her awesome site.

I was inspired to make something out of the scan because Asuka seemed so helpless. I was oroginally going to keep the white silhouette there, but tried applying effects and realized that the brightness would overwhelm the rest of the wallpaper. So I found an image of Unit-01 and vectored it's silhouette. It was also originally in white, but then I scrapped the idea and decided that a black shadow was creepier. XD
I had to re-CG Asuka, because she was very grainy. That's the step that took the most time.

Details ~ (In steps, this time)
RE-CG of Asuka -
Time - Around 6 hours. I hate outlines, I really do. XD
Layers - 21
Listening to - Sifl and Olly skits.

Vector tracing of Unit-01 (includes screwing around with it until I was satisfied) -
Time - 20 minutes. ^^;
Layers - 3
Listening to - Nena - 99 Red Balloons (DDr Remix)

Background and effects -
Time - 3 hours
Layers - 24
Listening to - Loveless music.

Jeez, this is a long description. I'll upload the textless version if someone asks, but I can't really be bothered to do it right now. XD

More resolutions coming soon at DiGiKiwibird.

[UPDATE] Textless version -

    This looks awesome. It's like Asuka first time seeing an EVA and really understands the enormity of the situation. I like how you placed Asuka with the EVA. Also, it's cool how you placed it all in shadow. I like the feel of the wallie and the colors. Really amazing work! XD

    Ooo I just love the sky, it's so beautiful and the silhouettes just look great^^
    The atmosphere is just great!

  11. Sunira Jul 28, 2005

    You're right, the thumbnail does look like ass. :} But the wallpaper certainly doesnt. Interesting swirls define the clouds in the sky and the looming shadow is well done. Good work.

  12. Barbara Jul 28, 2005

    That is so nice wallie, great job with the bg, the full view does look much much better ^_^

  13. Yina Jul 28, 2005

  17. StarCentury Aug 07, 2005

    Holy crap, zephy! o_o;; I never seen a high-quality Asuka wall like this before, it feels so red like her niche color! I also like the sunset over the eva and how you CGed Asuka so damn well! Grade A walling in my book! XD
